“This came from my mother-in-law via my wife. It's always been a family favorite, especially in cool/cold weather. It does require a pressure cooker, but I believe more people should learn to cook with one. It's fast! And it makes one of the tougher cuts of beef into a melt-in-your-mouth comfort food. I've never seen any written directions that I know of. Just experiment a little and you'll come up with your own!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the round steak into pieces about the size for one serving -- maybe 2-3 inches by 4-5 inches.
  2. Season meat with salt, pepper, garlic.
  3. Dredge in white flour (both sides).
  4. Brown meat in 1/2 cup (+/-) oil in skillet or bottom of pressure cooker.
  5. Empty the soup cans into the pressure cooker. (If you used it for browning, be sure to pour off excess oil.).
  6. Add the meat -- unless it's still in the pressure cooker :).
  7. Mix meat gently into soup concentrate, making sure that each piece is coated on both sides.
  8. Following the directions for your pressure cooker, cover and seal.
  9. Place the “rocker” on the top steam vent.
  10. Cook over medium-high heat.
  11. When the “rocker” begins rocking, you can reduce heat as long as it keeps rocking.
  12. Cook for ten to twelve minutes, then remove from heat.
  13. Following directions for your cooker, allow to cool on a trivet or hasten the cooling with water running into a sink.
  14. DO NOT remove the rocker until the pressure has gone down.
  15. Open lid when the pressure lock permits.
  16. Serve hot with mashed potatoes and vegetable of your choice.
  17. (Increase or decrease amounts carefully! The amount of meat can be varied, but doubling the meat doesn't mean you need to double the amount of oil.).
